It appears the left speaker isn't as loud as the right. It's quite possible I applied too much heat to one of the surface mount components and fried a resistor or something so one channel is letting in more voltage than the other.
Oh well. At least I learned something.

Glad to see this thing is still helping people years after I struggled with it.

I share your thoughts on the one speaker not receiving enough power, thus sounding much lower. I'm no electrician, but you may want to look at the main positive (+) wiring and ensure you didn't burn off any more of the mini wires than are kept together. If you "lowered it's gauge" it won't be able to allow enough power through.

If push comes to shove, you could always change the volume levels of your headset in your Windows/Realtek driver software.

I used this guide last night on a project to fix my old headset...

Its now working like new after some issues cleaning the paint off the wires to get a clean solder.

Tho I don't know why...... But following the diagram exactly I had no sound in the left speaker, after some poking and prodding of the wires. When I touched Red and Blue together the speaker worked, so I soldered red and blue to point R and now every thing works.

No expert on this electrical wizardry or how and why this worked but hey at least it works.

Terribly sorry for necroposting, but I guess I have to try.
How are you guys using Vengeance 1500 anyways ? I bought it like 3 years ago, it had a terrible buzzing noise with microphone activated and after playing around with different drivers and settings I kinda gave up on it. The funniest thing is, the problem persisted on two different desktops, but wasn't present on a laptop running linux or smth...
So I guess the problem COULD be fixed by a combination of software, the question is what exactly is it ?
Can someone help ?
